WHO WE ARE
We are friends, family, and neighbors who want to plant seeds of change.
Ruth Akumbu, the Founder, takes a holistic approach in the service of individuals and communities.
In 2001, friends, colleagues, and the founder created the Seek Ye Multipurpose Group in their native country of Cameroon, Africa. The grassroots mission was to provide:
Financial support of children with little to no opportunities in poor communities to attend school
Outreach and exposure to subjects such as clean water, AIDS prevention resources, and significance of education
Sponsor sporting events for young people in communities and schools in exchange for school materials
Provide educational resources or material support for women, particularly single young mothers and uneducated/under-educated children. Thus, creating opportunities for them to learn entrepreneurial skills and ventures to better their lives and communities.
Computer technology competences (theory) and competencies (practical)
WHAT WE DO
We bring opportunities to the communities.
Working within the heart of communities and their infrastructure, we aim to catalyze a force through friends, partnerships, donors, etc – interested in bettering our communities and ourselves. As a result of these efforts, Seek Ye grew into the Plant A Seed nonprofit in 2010, a bi-continental organization in the United States and Cameroon. Combining the resources of both continents, we continue to plant seeds of hope and knowledge to grow strong communities in our home Cameroon, Africa, and beyond.
